A short video by an Apollo researcher to demonstrate that there was insufficient time to take this series of three consecutive Apollo 17 photographs.
As professional photographer Jack White BA has shown, the quantity of photographs purporting to record the Apollo lunar EVAs could not have been taken on the Moon in such impossible time frames. Apart form the photographic tasks the Apollo 17 astronauts had to: Inspect LM for damage, deploy flag, unpack and deploy radio and TV equipment and establish contact with Earth, unpack/assemble/equip and test the LRV electric-powered 4-wheel drive car and drive it 30.5 miles, unpack and deploy numerous experiment packages. Find/document/collect 243.1 pounds of rocks, conclude experiments, and return to LM.
Total time on the Moon for all Apollo missions was 4834 minutes. Total number of photographs taken was 5771 photos.
